Socks first -

These were a gift from Mugsy on Ravelry.  So warm and beautiful and snug.  Also the cookie...tastes like a small Moon Pie!

This is Mary's afghan I finished.  I only made two of the squares...the ones which are one over from the top left square.  Just made them up.  Kind of like the one that is one down....Might have to steal the afghan back and try to figure out how I made it!  My favorite square is the one situated in the second row from the bottom, second square from the right - called Kiss Fist and was designed by Shelbyshea on Ravelry...has to do with sign language.

This is Barbara...did not ask her permission to post! Yikes! She was a nurse with the cancer place that hubby had to visit for several years.  What a dear sweet woman.  She has Tinkerbell on her lap - Mary's  doggie who is as sweet as she is cute! Loves for her Auntie Cat to throw the ball for her.

Now the Trivia!

Did you know the saying "God willing and the Creek don't rise" was in reference to the Creek Indians and not a body of water?  It was written by Benjamin Hawkins in the late 18th century.  He was a politician and Indian diplomat.  While in the south, Hawkins was requested by the President of the U.S. to return to Washington .  In his response, he was said to write, "God willing and the Creek don't rise."  Because he capitalized the word "Creek" it is deduced that he was referring to the Creek Indian tribe and not a body of water.
